Wynberg brush St Andrew’s aside

Wynberg Boys' beat St Andrew's 36-12 on day two of the St Stithians Easter Festival.

St Andrew's scored the first try of the match through centre Angus Cook, but Wynberg pressed hard and breached their opposition's resolute defence through winger Tristan Turner.

St Andrew's struck back with another five-pointer, but the Cape side replied with two of their own before half-time. 

Wynberg absorbed the attacking prowess of St Andrew's in the second half before powering away to score three more tries and maintain their impressive festival form.
